Fake It Till You Break It: Earnest Sewn Offers Convincing Distressed Denim


Got a cellphone with sharp edges? Or a cellphone that you’ll use for the next three years? We didn’t think so. But you don’t need either of these things if you’ve got a pair of Earnest Sewn’s expertly distressed men’s jeans. Unlike obvious “artistic” distressing you’ll see in some lines, their jeans have subtle, rugged details like a worn-in cell-in-pocket facade and a bit of ripping near the hem. Denim Therapy may be in the business of fixing holes in jeans, but we’re no less impressed when a brand creates good, authentic distressing for the sake of style.

Kuro Denim: Top Notch Men’s Jeans From Japan


When we chatted with Kuro Denim at PROJECT NY we were really impressed with the detail and thoughtfulness that we saw in each pair of the Japanese brand’s jeans. They launched with a spring 2010 line under the name Kuro (which translates to black). A blurb in their latest lookbook explains that the name Kuro was chosen because the word represents “darkness and loneliness with an image of great mystery and great strength.” Fabrics include two variations coined Nihon Menpu and Yoshikawa Orimono, and the line comes in a range of fits, from slim tapered to skinny to wide straight.

The real magic is in the detailing and wash of their jeans, our favorite of which looked like they’d been worn lovingly for many years. Artistic, yet modest and clean stitching on the back waistband and “dirty” facades created using fading, distressing, and splashes of paint are just two examples of innovative (but not over-used) approaches we were shown. Some of the jeans are made to look like the factory worker’s jeans, reinforcing the origin of denim as a utility fabric for the working class. After getting up close to the denim, we left feeling like Kuro is a pricey denim brand that delivers a product worth investing in.

Acid Wash, Studs & Ombre: Kill City Jeans Spring 2012 #projectshow


Studs, fringe, ombre, stars & stripes… list these elements in a row and you might imagine the ultimate overkill, but Kill City Jeans has mastered the art of quintessential rock’n'roll. Their denim, 80% of which is manufactured domestically, is shredded, studded, dyed, and treated to appeal to your inner badass. Both sexes are treated to plenty of color and texture (with the colors desaturated and the texture well-played), and more basic washes for days where you don’t feel like dressing for a music video.

The men’s line comes in three basic fits and features wax coats, reverse mineral wash, and distressed yarn-dyed styles. The women’s line is a bit more playful, including (our favorite) purple ombre cut-off shorts, ready to be DIY’d (they even come with a bag of studs). Best sellers like the navajo print and stars & stripes jeans continue to lead the collection, but this is a good place to start if you’re looking to expand way beyond the generic blue jean for spring this year.

JFour’s 2011 Fall Womens Collection Has Your Classic Styles, With An Edge


The JFour 2011 Fall/Winter Womens Collection is your go-to when looking for comfortable, everyday denim that you know you can wear this season and on. If you want to take some chances, you can try out the harem-esque cut, but they still have the classic skinny and boyfriend styles available also. We love how the addition of rips and distressing give the jeans a bit more attitude than just any other ol’ pair without being too overwhelming. The light-wash jeans are a great option for pairing with a darker wash jean jacket, like they show here, which is a look that can work all year round—AKA worth it.

Glammed-Out Denim Shirts And Bombshell Appeal In Vogue Spain


When it comes to the definition of glam, you can bet that bombshell waves, scarlet polish, and dramatic, gem-encrusted jewelry will be included in the description. Vogue Spain‘s December 2011 “Joyas” supplement has all that and more. Grounded in crisp chambray oxford tops and grainy, dark-wash denim shirts, Charlotte di Calypso avoids looking like she overdosed on decadence. We love the mix of denim with rich, high-waisted bottoms, all thrown under wool overcoats and topped off with structured handbags, tongue-in-cheek hats, and oodles of glittery baubles. It’s fun, flirty, and just the right amount of alluring.

Get The Look: Big Sweaters & Skinny Jeans For Comfortable Fall Fashion


When looking for great, easy fashion, you don’t have to go any farther than Brooklyn. That’s why we’ve rounded up these options for you to steal this Brooklyn flea market shopper’s style to make it your own. This laid-back weekend look is all you need to for those brisk fall days, when a real jacket is still not needed but warmth is. We mean really–how absolutely cozy does that sweater look? The combination of it with the bright red fringe scarf and distressed skinny jeans create the perfect balance of comfort and fun. We also love how the oversized sweater compliments her fitted jeans and tall black boots. Topping it all off with the chic floppy sun hat is the perfect accessory to not overwhelm the outfit, but rather make it completely put together.
